i have this phone for the second day and it still doesn't amaze me as the first experience like with the S3.
cant see the octa core working,well maybe its a bit faster on some apps but regardless that haven't enjoyed pretty much anything.
my device came and right out the box started using it,loaded gmail account and everything started downloading without customization from my side.
screen is beautiful,videos are sharper,pictures are rich in color.camara voice commands didn't work that well just like with the S3 had to practice speaking while holding the camara in shoot position while the momment goes away.
another thing that cought my attention was that the native browser doesn't run flash player content.
and since the get go is laggy,something I didn't spected from such a suposedely powerfull device.
simple commands like pressing the home button after launching an app takes pretty much valious miliseconds.
what can I say,i was pretty much undecided about getting this terminal or the HTC one.but now only rests to try the htc one when I get rid of this S4.
p.s.>my intention is not diminish the S4,its just I just spected really much more from it.
if you hold galaxy grand and s4 in hand, it would not make any difference.
Why have they given 'Infrared'!?
Some top models of leading brands are now again giving Infrared! Who uses that now with other advanced File Transfer Technologies Available!
Or is this some new and different version of Infrared im unaware of?
Yea samsung has got a huge deal of specs.
but i think samsung should do something great for user experience like hTC did.
frankly htc sense is way better than touchWiz.
Many comments on the radio non-existance. Some of them was about expensiveness of 3g data to listen radio on the web, some was about many radio stations which don't have streaming media options. They're right I think. But those radios and int.service providers will have to adapt themselves to the trend. As I know I-Phones don't have radio either. Total market share of i-phones plus galaxy s4 or s5's in the near future may be somewhere near 50 percent. If those radios want to be listened (commercial stimulus) they have to find solutions together with internet service providers like less data usage when listening radio on the net, avalibility of much more web radio streams etc. You cannot resist to the trend.
mokha65, 28 Apr 2013Hi team
i would like to ask if galaxy s4 i9500 has LTE (4G) , because some info said yes and ... moremost people have doubt about it... well i will clear it to every point...
there are 2 octa core verions out of which one support 4G while other supports hspa+
1. the latter one is the international version viz, i9500 which supports only hspa+... its usually for those countries which doesnt have LTE connectivity, but some countries have got both i9500 n i9505
2. the former one is korean version which has same octa chip but clocked at higher(1.8ghz) speed in its A15 core n also supports LTE(4G)... n its only for korean market...
3. third one is i9505 or LTE version which upports LTE n has quad core snapdragon 600 chip
4. there are various other models for US like at&t, verizon, sprint, tmobile, US cellular, cricket, etc all of them support LTE n are based on same i9505 versions...
hope i've cleared all ur doubts...
Battery life much better than galaxy s3. But u have to charge it with the adapter supplied not with PC connected to USB.charging with the adapter takes much less time.tis phone is faster than note 2.

AnonD-121813, 29 Apr 2013I'm a hardcore Samsung fan too bro!!! owned s2 and note but everytime with the deame design I ... moreYou are a liar. You don't own any samsung devices, and you are not a fan of samsung.
Go and play with your metal toy Xperia Z.
AnonD-8044, 29 Apr 2013You blew your cover as a troll when you mentioned your Sony Z.I'm a hardcore Samsung fan too bro!!! owned s2 and note but everytime with the deame design I seriously got bored so got my Xperia z as I get the value of premium and performance in one flagship I'm not trolling just explaining real facts that so much extra power is really if very little or no use in real time experience!!! just my opinion to guys not to shell their hard earned money for a very marginal performance increase from s3!!!!!!!!!!!!! no offence but s4 seriously a cheap plastic model looking phone,I expected much from Samsung!!! just my honest opinion something which everyone knows!
Guys there is not a big difference between s3 and s4.
Apart from some additional features like air view, air gesture, full hd screen, much higher ppi.....etc..these features consumes more battery than any other phones so a big battery.
But think logically a human eyes cannot distinguish between hd and full hd on such small screen..it requires bigger screen likes hdtv and full hd tv...infact we cannot disinguish beyond 250-270 ppi, so 441ppi doesnt matters alot.
Air view and gestures are the features only to give something different but a normal person cannot use these features all the time, it is only a playing thing for some time.
Its not a kind of revolution over s3...I am using s3 and pretty satisfied...even I changed multiwindow feature limited to some apps by sammy to use every apps via rooting it.
So guys if you have s3 dont go for s4(in my opinion).look fora phone according to your use....
Well no doubt Samsung makes pretty neat stuff. Yet, the HTC One really caught my eye with its speed, high end design, and storage space. Not to mention equalizer with beats audio. Major blow to Samsung even with the GS4 on its way. Don't get me wrong, I've been a fan of Samsung myself owing the Fascinate and GS2. I'm just more into (entertainment) rather than (casual luxury).
